Lakes Lemon and Monroe

Sunday, November 19th, 2006

Dave and I were hoping to get to ride at Brown County today, but he went for a hike this morning and called me to say that things were pretty muddy. We decided to forego the trail ride in favor of a road ride.

We started from his house in Unionville, rode along State Road 45 for a while, and then on Lanam Ridge Road, followed by some gravel roads and finally, back across the causeway at Lake Lemon and up the hill back to his house. We rode about 15 miles in a bit over an hour.

While we were riding, I learned that Dave has been working on a hiking guide that details some 45 different trails in this area. He said he’s going to give me a copy. It’s so weird when someone mentions something like that out of the blue — I wondered why he hadn’t mentioned it sooner, although I realized that we just haven’t talked about hiking very much. I asked if he’s planning on publishing this guide, and he said no. Which I can understand, but I think it would be a pretty cool thing to do.

Dave also showed me a pond that’s a bit off the beaten path … it’s not even far from the road, but you have to go down a gravel road a little bit and then do a very brief hike to get to it. It’s always cool to find things (or be shown things) that most people would never even know was there (also an argument against publishing the hiking guide).

After I got home, Sarah and I got some Starbucks and headed for Lake Monroe. We wandered around in the beach area and took some photos. It was pretty cold and windy, so we didn’t stay too long. We also went out on some of the docks, which of course aren’t in use now, and that was pretty neat.
